Brewers fightback stuns Gulls: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Burton produced a fine comeback against Torquay to claim the points with a 3-2 win after finding themselves two goals down.

The hosts opened the scoring in the eighth minute when Chris Zebroski's pinpoint cross from the left was headed in by Scott Rendell at the far post.

After another spell of pressure, the home side went 2-0 up in the 15th minute when Burton failed to clear the danger from a Jake Thomson corner from the right.

Zebroski was again instrumental, keeping the ball in on the left and then teeing up Adam Smith for a cross-cum-shot from outside the box that was neatly turned in by central defender Chris Robertson, who had stayed up from the corner.

But Russell Penn cracked an unstoppable 25-yard strike past United keeper Michael Poke in the 31st minute as the visitors tried to mount a recovery.

The goal gave Burton confidence to shoot from range and they restored parity in the 56th minute from a 20-yard strike by Shaun Harrad.

Cleveland Taylor then won it for the Brewers with six minutes remaining as he skipped through the home defence before sending a low shot past home keeper Michael Poke from the right hand side of the penalty area.
